UPDATE: Does Anyone within the sound of this Blog...

Does anyone have a clue why the number thirteen is so prevalent in this seal?

There's even thirteen letters in e pluribus unum.

Can I get a witness? or a Link?

There is fifty stars around the middle thirteen redundant design symbols:
13 tail feathers
13 little globes
13 arrows
13 berries
13 leaves
... etcetra

...but then there are 12 "sticks" coming out from behind eagle's head!

Sure I could google this, but maybe someone has some new insight on the design. Thought I'd ask. by Pat Darnell

Could it be a Menorah, because a candelabra must have an odd number of branches. The central stem in a traditional menorah has branches extending from it as they are grafted. Does it ever make sense to have two grafts on one side and three on the other. Symmetry must be the reason. Or maybe it's just more sandbagging mysticism with no cause.

See also the comments.

13 colonies, I reckon. Invokes the start.

12 sticks for symmetry.

Could it be a menorah? I have a funny condition of always getting excited over trivial BS. I think that is the purpose behind the 13 repeating... As in who demarked the thirteen colonies. What happened to Florida in that era of colonizing?

I am truly eat up with it, and "they" know it, while "they" laugh over a bowl of corn flakes.

And Florida was Spanish territory. Then when the English destroyed the Spanish Armada it was acquired.

Esteban said...

13 colonies yep. And then the 13 arrows represent the native tribes we established dominance over in each state.

Wow, Esteban, capture the arrows too? So it is like a Raptor of peoples and tribes, while also a presentation of solidarity... no? like an eagles nest... with poison ivy?

I thought it had something to do with the Hells Angels. MC, the number thirteen. All that Mary Jane stuff. Wait just a ding dang minute....did they have motorcycles back then? Guess that's not it. I bet Christina has a take on this topic. Wonder where that girl is...Christina, you out there?
Man, it's really smoky in there. Oh, that's the backroom at Central Texas B-B-Que. Well, probably better if I didn't comment on this.
Never mind.

There you go getting my mind off this trivial stuff. Let's Barbecue. You get the wood, I'll get the brisket.

You got that right, little brother, let's cook! Does anybody have a smoker?
